Just a few quick words

No, the blog hasnt come to an end, its just that  currently my health issues are such that I  have neither the time, or strength to do them. There are reasons for this which I’d rather not go into, OK

Thanks

Alright, the two blogs have got 1 thing in common for a reason

And fine, the reason for that relates to someone who was born 114 years ago today, in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma, before it was even a state, just, hence the obvious song. Though by the time this became a Musical she had long retired from dancing, and given she died somewhere in the first half (or so) of the 1950’s, she might even have been dead. Yes, Clara Johnson’s birthday today.

The amusing, and wonderful thing is that tomorrow morning marks, finally the MRI to try and see what is the matter with my brain. Well, I’d take the robot body, and an AI mind, but not sure they are available! But yes, Rotwang, if you see this, please…

What a couple  of friends are trying to arrange (given how slow the NHS is here) is to get me over to the US, and get my brain sorted out, as well as something else, long overdue to be dealt with too. One of the things that has been mentioned is getting me over there (quite possibly Oklahoma as Clara’s birth state, as I cant afford LA (can anyone?), and if I do, no prizes for working out my name if I  do, wouldnt that be fun. But yes, I always said I’d get the MRI done here first, so we knew the issue, but finally that happens tomorrow, and after that, I said I’d put my brain, and body in Kiefer’s hands, so…

Yes, at some point next year, Clara Elaine Johnson the second might be writing this in Oklahoma, maybe? Or somewhere else, though the only way it will be Hollywood is if I find someone to buy for me, lol

OK, video. OK, in more senses than one, lol! Well, unless Rotwang has done something to the MRI tube, lol?

A new life for ‘me’

Just a brief note before I get started, as mainly covered it in ‘other’ blog, but for those who dont see both blogs… Yes, its been a while, I know. Yes, ended up back at the hospital Saturday, a week earlier than planned, but nothing major found, so on to the MRI this Saturday now! No, sadly, I dont think it has plans to brainwash me, or turn me into a robot, but a woman can dream.

I promised Betsy this a while back, but first she said to wait for chapter 2, as of more interest to me, and yes, she’s right, and I think its fair to say Chapter 3 will do that even more, but… She’d ‘threatened’ me a while back that she was going to do more naughty things to Stephanie Johnson in the future, and she’s finally getting to that point. Clearly the next chapter is going to bring a lot more, mind…

Though she has told me she’s not going to be turned into a robot, or sent back to the 1920’s as a flapper, though how much I believe her, no comment. So probably alien, or mermaid transformation or something, but fine, I’ll find out soon! Yes, I think its more fun when you know the face behind the stories, especially when its somebody like her. So yes, go read  https://mcstories.com/NeedToServe/index.html if you arent already. She’s a great writer, just saying…

I know, my name is Harlean Carpenter, but there is a reason behind it. Mind, if someone has his way, I might soon be Clara Johnson, possibly living in Oklahoma, where the original version was born! We will see, we will see…retired dancer, quite possibly!

To be fair to Betsy, I’m not the only one on the sharp end of her scribe at the moment, though to be fair, the ‘Rosie’ story is very sure, but I’m not sure I will get off as easily!

Right, video time. Talking about my future life, lets go back to something I did in my teens! No, not me in the video, but doing these songs, absolutely

 

Lets get together over a glass of…?

As, hopefully by now my regular readers will now know I’m strictly not allowed alcohol because of all the pills I’m on for my spine, and my brain, and everything else that has failed, but anyway… Doesnt stop me laughing about a story relating to the subject of drinking (or in this case, not drinking alcohol, does it? Yes, we’re on EMCSA story time again, and the next one might be too, depending on when I get to Betsy’s story. But for tonight…

https://mcstories.com/StraightToHerHead/index.html

Dont fall for the Author Name, this is not a hypno story, honest! To be honest, I’d love a date like this, and I wouldnt mind the job our ‘victim’ gets to do either! Except that with a major rebuild, me wearing that outfit, not really going to happen! So yes, no alcohol, no hypnosis, but a mind control story, honest. Yes, go read it, seriously! Great punch line too not what you will be expecting by then, for sure.

I cant in truth remember the last date, date that I went on. As for one like this, I only wish. But fine, I would love to be ‘set up’ like this, for sure. Yes, girls, and guys, a date for me doesnt have to end up romantic (in fact probably best for both if it doesnt), but fun like this, far more my scene. Oh fine, serving as a robot maid would be even better, but seriously…

Well, either that, or set up for some wealthy beau (male or female) from the 1920’s (with time travel?), as their cute flapper girl, or indeed, flapper maid would be fine by me! Well, wouldnt turn down a Marion Davies scenario, but anyway…?

Right, video time. A little glass of Champagne? Well, if only I could… Yes, I had this single 43 years ago, I have to say!

 

 

Guest, staff, or a bit of both?

I was considering giving my friend Betsy a plug in my next blog, because she’s got a follow up story to Auction out, and the first section is pretty good. Stephanie Johnson hasnt actually appeared yet, but I think its a certainty she will at some point, given the friendship between her, and me, unless I time travel Miss Johnson back to the 1920’s, or to a Robot Pod, and even then she’d probably come and get me! For those who want to check it out early, and its well worth doing, the link is

But for tonight at least, its been topped out by this!

https://mcstories.com/ScenesFromAHotel/index.html

Only question is whether I’d prefer to be a guest, or an employee at this place, or ideally a guest who gets selected to become staff! I know one thing, when I’m cleared to fly again, I really must try and book in at this place! It seems to be a non discriminatory hotel in the sense that both staff, and guests seem to be fair game to be transformed. What joy!

Its fair to say currently that I have probably got less mind to tamper with, but I have no idea if thats a good thing, or bad? Might spice up my sex life (not hard), if nothing else, or they might decide it would be fun to have a robot maid, or something. Either that, or open up a hotel in the 1920’s, and all staff need to act like sexy little flappers, with cosmetic improvements as needed, and I certainly would!

But yes, its a nice selection of short pieces, so if 8K words is beyond your time in 1 sitting, read some, save others for later, or reserve them, as a more suitable comment for hotels.

Oh, and as for those chocolates, oh please…!

The song is the obvious one for a hotel story, but its not the Eagles. I know nothing about this group, so I have no idea if they’ve made it since this, or it was a one and gone moment, but its a decent cover of the song, for sure. And lets face it, if you’re fussy, not hard to go find an Eagles version, lets face it

I hate you, Mr Wagner

Or maybe it should be I hate you, Mr Masked Writer? Why, well, maybe this

https://mcstories.com/WhateverGetsYouThroughTheNight/WhateverGetsYouThroughTheNight13.html

And to save you reading it all, especially as it wont make a ton of sense without the other 12 chapters, the quote is…

Another showed him as a proud Viking warrior, complete with the horns that Vikings didn’t wear until Wagner glued them onto some helmets.

Why do I hate this piece of reality, you might ask? Well, because as a woman, one of the parts I always wanted to play, despite the fact that I cant sing all that well, is to dress up like the Valkyrie women, with those amazing bodypieces, and the helmets with the horns, like the Viking women supposedly did, and then I find out that it wasnt really true! I suppose I shouldnt be totally surprised its all false, as I doubt many, if any women went on those Viking missions in the first place, but a girl/woman could dream.

Mind, I suppose that by now its so written into folklore, and that so few people would know the truth, that if the opportunity should arise, there’s no reason I couldnt still do it, while trying to remind myself that it was only a Wagner ornament, and not the real look, ah well…

In truth, I know, I only want to do it because of the crazy look, but I at least thought it was a genuine crazy outfit, but now even that dream is broken. As I say, in truth, there probably wasnt even any female Viking warriors, let alone wearing anything as excessive as that, but all the same.

But yes, you’re right, if someone came up to me, asked me to put on the whole Valkyrie costume, and perform, though hopefully not sing, of course I would, and love it!

Not sure I’ve ever included opera in any video, on either blog before, but there is always a first, and here it is!

Shuffle off to…?

Well, but for events of about 5 months ago, I’d now be thinking about a holiday in the US  next month, teaming up with Kate for a week or so. As to where it would have been, we will never know. At the time, prior to the first seizure, it was safe to say it was down to 2 options, New England, or possibly Oklahoma, for one very obvious reason. Yes, it might strictly be Kate’s home state, but it was someone else that I would have been going there for, also from that state, Clara Johnson! I suspect New England might have won out anyway, but we will never know for sure.

Mind, if someone has his way, I might be retiring to Oklahoma as Clara Johnson! No, I cant afford Los Angeles, which is where I’m certain her life ended, but anyway…But yes, I might (if even possible) retire as Clara Johnson, but somewhere slightly warmer in winter, lol! Someone might suggest Oregon, lol?

Its funny, I was watching a video on You Tube last week, the 50 cheapest cities to retire to in the US, and both the big cities in Oklahoma made the list. Mind, a lot of them were either in the ‘frozen’ north, or in that Deep South area which wouldnt be suitable for an LGBT lady like me! Yes, a reason why they are the cheapest areas, not the loveliest to live in.

The funny thing is, assuming I get cleared to fly to the US is now where my next trip will be? If it is later this year with Kate, a lot of the US, including New England is going to be a ‘bit’ chilly by then (given its not going to be September, and October is doubtful), but whether she will think something through, who knows? Otherwise I think Oregon might be possible, and I might end up a whole new woman, though doubtful that will be a robot one. Oh, I wish! Mind, I’d settle for an AI brain replacement for starters, lol. Now wouldnt that be fun? Even more so if it came complete with young, Clara Johnson body!

In truth, actual holiday plans now are more likely to be next year, but who knows? Getting back to the retirement list, as a link to the video, and to Clara Johnson, one from the frozen north list, Buffalo. I’ve got to be honest, this is one of very few sections of film that I’ve seen her in where she’s not dancing, once the musicals kicked in. Yes, its 42nd Street, she did dance in the film, a lot, but all she gets to do here is a little singing, and to look cute in a rail sleeper carriage, with another girl, little minx! Mind, I did once, a very long time ago shuffle off to Buffalo, but in a car, with my partner at the time. No, we split 20 years ago, and I have no idea where she is, if even still alive, as she was a bit older than me!
